Forty guests for a 40th birthday. Lunch under the sun, dinner under the stars, at a private home perched on the edge of a Blue Mountains valley ridge.
The brief was for amazing food (thank you one of Sydney’s finest restaurants), that it had to be absolutely beautiful, and could we possibly transform the outdoor dining room and lounge between lunch and dinner?
Dream job status this one. Our client’s brief was exacting: high end cocktail party with dress circle view of the fireworks on New Year’s Eve.
A taste, just a taste of this beautiful French inspired wedding we organised and styled for lovely, lovely Julia and Tim on an exquisite estate in the picturesque southern highlands of NSW, published in Real Weddings‘ beautiful White issue of Winter 2013.
A spring time wedding spilling over with David Austen roses, lavender, sweet pea, ranunuculus, peris japonica, hyacinth and more (oh what a joy it was to work to create the arrangements, our studio smelled divine).
Styled with rustic cream lacework candleholders and vases from our hire range, we also dipped into our collection of cream footed flower stands, cut crystal candleholders, French timber screens, wicker arm chairs and more.
The day captured with grace and flair by GM Photographics.
There’s a whole lot of love in every frame of this lovely marquee wedding we were privileged to be a part of — a wedding celebration that was a little bit vintage, a little bit rustic, a little bit country, with a touch of DIY love — and captured so exquisitely by Holly Prins Photography at the historic Ravensthorpe on the NSW south coast.
From the family heirloom brooch passed down through the generations which has seen each wearer enjoy a long and happy marriage, to the stationery designed by the groom, the little guest gift jam pots covered in fabric by the bride, to the flowers we couldn’t but help pour all our love into — late season hydrangea, david austen roses, jasmine foliage, succulents, sea holly and more. Enjoy. And Elise and Matt, thank you so much for letting us be a part of it. x
